We recently have been looking at different care delivery models. We are in the process of redesigning our own, currently patient focused care. I am interested in the use of ancillary staff ie patient care techs, monitor techs, ekg techs and phlebotomists (specifically in CCU's)in other hospitals. How specifically are they used. Are nurse case manager or nurse practioners used in the CCU area? I am also interested in the number of hours per patient day on each unit and the number of beds on each unit. Any info would greatly appreciated. Thank you.
